We have two cerebral  hemispheres, the left and the right. Both have different functions:

As you can see, the left hemisphere is the part of structure, clear information and text. The right side is creativ, chaotic, artistical. The main design of websites are definitly for the light hemisphere: it has a straight logic format, lines, letters, lists etc.
But our artistic, creative and holistic mind of the right site is neglected.
To use both parts of the brain, it is usefull to work with mindmaps.
It was invented by an british Psychologist to implement all qualities of our brain.

If we create contend with the format of mindmap, we work with both sides of our brain. It is much easier to handle and process information and contend. Groups who are organized like this modell are much more effective.

From the first brainstroming until the last presentation, we can organize databases and projects much better and we oversee in one view the whole thing. We can realize very fast which part we can change and update, where we have to work and develop.

There are an unlimited variety of apps, that can be added in our platform.

The basic plugins of social networking as there are by facebook, twitter, rss-feed and some blog sites can be sure to be in the first version of our platform. this enhance the connectivity to other social media platforms.

Second are the tools of business and community collaboration like statistics, to-do-list, note, callendar, voice-chat etc.

Also the possibility of full-sharing datas, medias (like videos, photos etc.) and documents can be mentioned as a capital step to our connectivity-network. it could be realized in implementing other platforms like flickr,dropbox,skype,youtube and openoffice for documents. Maybe it will be possible, to edit documents live and online.

Another main function will be the creation of knowledge-databases to share with friends like wikipedia. The structure of mindmap can focus an easy and intuitive way to get into knowledge. Cooperations with platforms like wikipedia can be possible.

There are a millions of other possibilities. Feel invited to think of some 🙂

The idea began end of 2011. At this time i was thinking about a network of people who creat there own space but in real. That means they would have a little pice of land and can decide, what is built there. I planned with a community of a few hundred people. (see for that the project-page:http://socialvillage.lima-city.de (in German).  For that venture we needed a plattform, which integrate tools of organizational management, process developement and social networking. That kind of platform did not exist.

Our first idea about it was, that if we create a platform, it will be project-based not people-based like all the other plattforms.
That is because the focus in our network is an activity not the jabber of many people.

Second is, that in our village-project we need a lot of categories, like a business-category, a science-category, a main-category, a landscape-category etc. And this categories will hace some under-categories.
But at first, not we, but the people’s needs and acticitiys creates the categories, there are not fixed (they come and disapear with their need):

That reminds us to the structure of mindmap, which helps uncategorized notions to be organized in a system, that is very close to our way of thinking.
So we started to combine the social-network-idea with mindmap.

But the third step was, that we would need some advanced tools, like to-do-lists, chats, picture-sharing, vote-tools etc. to develop a usable working surface for a community who plan to develop a real village.-> The apps came into it. With that little tools, we have the opportunity to create simple programs in all kind of ways to solve mostly all problems of developing, organizing and deciding in a social community.

In the end we realized, that this is not just a tool for this projects, it could be the tool for a lot of social, private and economical projects, that need a good structure of communication and exchange of information in one plattform in a very intuitive and brain-friendly design.

I am very happy, that I can involve you into the developement of our project!

We made some suggestions for the raw design and if you want, you can vote and discuss our product.

It is also possible, if you have your own ideas, to share it with us, so finally we together find the best design!

Please vote for the best design and leave some comments with your ideas and wishes!
How important would it be for you to customize the design by yourself?
